In Power and Progress, authors Daron Acemoglu and Simon Johnson discuss how cutting-edge technological advances can become empowering and democratizing tools, but not if all major decisions remain in the hands of a few hubristic tech leaders. With their bold reinterpretation of economics and history, Acemoglu and Johnson fundamentally change how we see the world, providing the vision needed to redirect innovation so it again benefits most people.
